So ive had my mothership for 2 summers now and im not feeling the chainstay legnths and the color anymore so its time for an update. i plan on selling it for 200 and then use that money towards and new frame. and get the rest from christmas money.

So i am having some difficulties choosing frames. im 6'2 and growing at 16. it seems as theres not really a frame with this geo :
chainstays slammed would have to be from 13- 13.4 is the longest ill go.
21.1 or 21.25 toptube legnth.
black or raw
75.5 headtube angle
under 5 lbs
standover 8-9"
has to be pretty strong. id prefer a good warrenty.
I am not a weight weenie so lets not even start this fucking war. im just trying to lighten it up a bit with a lighter frame.

sorry for the long post
So im looking for reviews on these frames and your opinions.
closest ones i found were mutiny cosmotron v3 (nice just a tad heavy) ,
s&m btm (probably one of my best bets but need reviews) ,
bsd wza(nice but i dont know much about bsd and frames.),
eastern codec (perfect cept the chainstays )
, skavenger bridge(nice but heard its weak) ,
the take ive 5 street ( really love but cant find 21.25),
Guerra Martyr frame ( REALLY INTRESTED in this frame but i dont wanna break it and vein never answers my emails about the warrenty)

if you really want to be happy with what you ride - build your own frame - and get it built by one of the best companies ever

Yeah I would second the custom frame vote, since what you're looking for is pretty specific

I run a CODEC, love it, and would never want a CS that short. But... I have been riding for quite some time so having a chainstay that is more than 13.5 is normal for me

500 dollars for a frame built by one of the best frame building companies ever tailored to your choosing?

A frame that only you will own due to its customisation - customised frames usually sell for a pretty penny to

Its a bargain when your fly frame will come in at around 400$ not to mention standard will make it 10 times stronger than a fly frame

Ive seen standard frames last a teenager all the way till he is a man with kids (The STA frame to be specific) - it will outlast your riding interests - youll never need to buy a new frame again

standards rad and all but you can get a custom solid and custom bars for less than the price of 1 custom standard.

i thought you had to be like 30 to be president?

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones
